Top tips for a Finchley Home Buyers Survey


In terms of its housing, Finchley could be nominally divided into East Finchley, Finchley proper and North Finchley.

East Finchley has many Victorian and Edwardian houses and cottages as well as Arts & Crafts –inspired housing from the 1920s and 30s, such as are found in East End Road and Lyttelton Road.

Central Finchley has large detached Edwardian houses such as are found in Dollis Avenue.

North Finchley has many 1920s semi-detached houses such as in Friern Watch Avenue.

Dwellings in the vicinity of the Dollis Brook on the borders of Finchley to its north and west, in streets such as Dollis Road and Holders Hill Road, are subject to flood alerts and warnings.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Utilities are part of the surveyors job to inspect during a HomeBuyer or Building Survey. They do this by turning on the hot water and checking the lights work.

A RICS surveyor doesn't test the electrics or the gas. If they feel it appropriate to do so they'll state in their report - All gas and oil appliances and equipment should regularly be inspected, tested, maintained and serviced by a registered ‘competent person’ and in line with the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important to make sure that the equipment is working correctly, to limit the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning and to prevent carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from leaking into the air. For more advice contact the Gas Safe Register for gas installations, and OFTEC for oil installations.
Properties built along the Durham Road in Finchley date in the region between 1900 and 1910 which is late Victorian early Edwardian. A number of the properties have the opportunity for extending.

In a recent survey in Durham Road, Finchley, N2 9DR, the property had been heavily extended and as such the client would be advised to obtain planning permission and building control documents from the seller.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Finchley and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Finchley's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
